    It is fairly see through. Mine are lined to the knees, and you can see the line at the knees readily.

    @ chogall, I posted a couple pictures back when I got them initially.

    @ Dingus The navy twill is the heaviest. So far the individual weight description on Luxire's page has been accurate.

    When in doubt about colours, order swatches.

    Clapey, I like that closure--is that the standard side metal adjuster, or did you customize it?

    Apologies if already discussed.

    Gotcha, thanks. I may steal your picture to send to them to ask them to reproduce :)

    Can someone explain what the benefits of the side closure are? If the waist of the trouser is bigger than your actual waist, and you use the closure to make it "fit", won't you have creases or... what's the word, some sort of extra fabric there that wouldn't look so good? Also, don't they go on the belt line, as opposed to below as we see here? The pants look great btw.

    Anyone have any of the Dugdale flannels made up? Wondering what shade the greys are and how fuzzy they are.

    Yeah, that's one of the ones I am looking at. May just pull the trigger.

    A considered response to a similar query, which also addresses your questions.

    What's the consensus on the best way to go about having Luxire replicate an existing shirt? Measure it myself, or send it to them to replicate? Any feedback from those who've used either of these options?

    Only tried it one way - sent in a good fitting shirt. First shirt they made was near perfect replica.

    Cool, thanks for the info!

    Anyone ordered a shirt in either of these fabrics?

    I'd really appreciate some pics of shirts in either of these fabrics. Sorry to bombard the thread with a bunch of questions. :embar:
